 Caramelized Onion & Pork Potstickers
My boyfriend and I enjoy making these yummy potstickers. You can use egg roll wrappers if you prefer, just cut off the corners to make them round.—Sarah Steinhilber, Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota

Directions (continued)

  • 425° for 15-20 minutes. Cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • Squeeze softened garlic into a large bowl. Add the mushrooms, water,
  • cornstarch, sesame oil, salt, pepper and caramelized onion; mix
  • well. Crumble sausage over mixture and mix well.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of filling in the center of one wrapper. (Until
  • ready to use, keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp towel to
  • prevent them from drying out.) Moisten entire edge with water. Fold
  • wrapper over filling to form a semicircle. Press edges firmly to
  • seal, pleating the front side to form three to five folds.
  • Holding sealed edges, stand each dumpling on an even surface; press
  • to flatten bottom. Curve ends to form a crescent shape. Repeat with
  • remaining wrappers and filling.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat.
  • In batches, arrange dumplings flat side down in pan; cook for 1 to 2
  • minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Add 1/4 cup water;
  • bring to a simmer. Cover and steam for 4-6 minutes or until water is
  • almost absorbed and filling is no longer pink.
  • Uncover; cook for 1 minute or until bottoms are crisp and water is
  • evaporated. Serve with soy sauce. Yield: 4 dozen.
